If you have or are developing a real ulcer, then antibiotics for the H.pylori bacteria might be in order. My wife developed a bleeding ulcer, and although it seems to have been brought on by nsaid's, it took .the antibiotic therapy along with med changes to cure it.

Bad gastritis, may be a different situation in and of itself. Too much drink and too many aspirins can cause this in me, and how it relates to eventually develping a full blown ulcer, I havent had to find out.

If it is more of a reflux situation, (all of these hurt, and can hurt similiarly). I'm not a believer in any of the proton pump inhibitors (or whatever they are called, that sounds like a science fiction weapon) or acid inhibitors. I lived on tums until I had surgery to tighten the valve - Laproscopic Nissan Fundoplikation. The stomach acids are there for a reason, they are one of the body's first lines of defense in immunity. (plus digestion).

All in all this is what I know about gi problems. The only med I remember that flat out hurt my stomach was naltrexone, and I just got off of it. I also have U.C. so may experience may be more varied than the next guy.
